June 6, 2016


The past few weeks have been CRAZY busy! With school ending and seeing lots of family members and friends plus the daily hustle and bustle of story time for the littles, walks and other appointments I finally had a day where I NEEDED a break.



Now I am not saying the “busy-ness” has stopped but I am realizing the importance of a break between here and there.  I forget to just take down time for myself (away from house cleaning, grocery or clothe shopping, blogging, etc) and this past weekend reminded me of that. Friday night after a long rough day I was ready to stay home and do nothing. I took a nice warm bath, picked to watch “Clueless” from our dvd collection and vegged out on a fudge round or two (hey! It filled the need for chocolate to de-stress).


I am reminded of what Psalm 23:2 says “He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.” and I know this is what God wanted to remind me of in my time of just taking a break for me.


Apart from breaking time, how cute is this outfit? I didn’t think it would work (flowy crop top with linen pants) but I LOVED how comfortable these were together and how these photos came out. This is comfortable meets chic for sure and made for a nice outfit to wear on a rainy day to lighten any blues.

*Next Wednesday, June 15th I will be guest posting for Tiffany of Bright on a Budget and would love for you to check out a few style ideas for linen pants.


What do you do to take a break?

    Everyone needs a good break now and then, it is important to take care of ourselves before we can take care of others. Clueless would be my movie of choice as well (or Legally Blonde) 🙂

    I’m with you girl. I have been so bad about commenting on blogs and IG lately, because honestly…i just need a break! It’s been crazy, and I feel like neglecting the blog is probably better than neglecting my marriage! LOL Love that psalm. Also, seriously adorable top! Love the print!

    Taking a break went beyond my personal choice last week. Prioritizing can be so hard with so many things going on. LOVE that Psalm for when I need to be still and at peace. And I’m a huge fan of this flowy look on you! Your hair looks gorgeous!

    I love this look! I just got some linen pants, so I will definitely be wearing something similar! Sometimes, we all just need a little break. Thank you for this reminder that God is our giver of rest.

    It’s so important to a break in order to relax the mind and de-stress (and chocolate fudge sure doesn’t hurt either, hehe). I love this relaxed, effortless look 🙂
